if only they could talk…

Today is Day 1 of potty training Sam.

I tried to prepare as much as I could.

Potty, check!   Multiple pairs of big boy undies, check!  Potty Training Chart, check!  Stickers, check!  Lots of liquids to drink, check!  Fiber-rich foods, check!  Extra towels, check!  The list could go on.

The one thing I didn’t prepare for, however, was Sam’s desire to include all of his little friends in the potty training process.  Sam didn’t like the thought of being the only one wearing big boy undies, which helps me explain the following scene…

If at any point in the past year our neighbors have thought us strange, peering into our sunroom this afternoon would only confirm their suspicions.

Once Sam ensured that each friend had a pair of his undies on, he then proceeded to walk each animal to the bathroom, sit them on the pot, and wipe their…nose.

Yes, Sam has a runny nose right now, so the two things that he has seen me do all day long have been 1) rushing him to the potty and 2) wiping his nose.

Only time will tell as to whether or not this little Potty Party will help, or hurt, our efforts in training Sam.  In the mean time, it’s made our first day of potty training a lot more fun, which is always a good thing!

    How fun! Might as well potty train them all at once. =) With such cute big boy undies, what friend wouldn’t want some to wear?! Wishing you success in your endeavor.

    That picture is classic. We are also in the midst of potty training at our house. The Potty Chart seems to be going well. We also have stickers and such. If our little one gets enough stickers, she gets a present from her “princess box.” She loves it. You gotta do what you can in this parenting game.
